Descendant of Rabbi Yosef KARO #rabbinic
Menachem Butler <menachembutler@...>
A number of years ago, a handyman with the surname KARO (or a
variation of it) did some work at my home and when we asked him if
he was related to Rabbi Yosef KARO, (author of Shulchan Aruch, Beit
Yosef, Kesef Mishna,) he answered that he was indeed a descendant.
Alas, as I was younger then (and partly because it wasn't my family),
I never pursued this genealogical lead.
Should anyone be interested, I think that I might be able to find
this person. Let me know.
